    One thought on “Man Ray: Writings on Art”

    1. As a kid, I loved Man Ray. Almost the same way I loved Dali. But, I outgrew them both. Not like Marcel Duchamp who has consistently been an art-god to me. What I do admire Man Ray is his brilliant photographs - especially his portraits of well-known artists and writers - as well as his more 'artful' images he took.

I received a copy of this book from netgalley in return for a fair and honest review. 5-stars for amount of research and sheer amount of compilation. 3-stars for interest level, although that's based on my surreal expectations, perhaps. The intro was dead boring, which surprised me. I wanted to see more quirky evidence--come to think of it, I was delving for clues on how to unleash my own cheeky observations and world view. This isn't intended to be a book on 'How to Find Your Own Voice,' althou [...]
